    Hey there
    Is it worth commenting with FL?
    Do you really get more followers that way?
    Isn't it dangerous also?

    If it works, and is safe enough, can you guys recommend me some safe and good settings, for commenting with FL? :)

    Thanks in advance.

    Around April 2015, I used FL to comment - at the time I was only liking and commenting. I did so for around 2 weeks on a brand new account, with around 150 comments and 300 likes a day. I wasn't banned, but I ceased the process pretty quickly.

    Because you can only really control the contents of a comment when setting it up, along with which tag/location/user the comment will be posted on, it's hard to put together a comment that isn't ambiguous, spammy or just downright doesn't make sense. I found a lot of time I was getting replies in comment threads which I had simply commented things like "Great post :)" etcetera on. Looked really spammy and immediately seemed needy as a brand.

    I think if you're going to do it, just start out slow - as with all FL settings and then scale up. Ensure you pick a tag or niche to comment on that you can be 90% sure will be applicable to the comment you're posting. Lots of people piggyback hashtags, so it's worth researching which tags are least diluted and contain relatively the same imagery in each. For instance, if you pick #fashionblogger there will likely be brands which attach these tags but have no "fashion blogger" type imagery in the post, so commenting "Amazing shoes!" will not always bode well for you.

    It's tricky to master the perfect, non-spammy / non-ambiguous comment and to still not look like a complete idiot, but I'd say worthwhile if you can give the impression you have genuine interest in the posters image.

    It depends IMO
    I dont think this will create any good scenario to get good benefits.

    I agree completely - requires way too much attention and customization to avoid looking like obvious spamming. Fashion is quite good example here - just imaging going into the niche an start commenting: how do you now what's the post really about (nails, shoes etc.)?

    I used too, but then learned that it looks a bit too spammy. I would just perform comments manually and use FL for likes and follows in all honesty.

    generic comments sometimes look really dumb when don't match with the content... and suspicious as well. As they don't add much to the account attractiveness I guess manual comments would do better even if though there are less of them

    I'm interested in this too, do you use it for money sites? Or is it only spoofed facebook pages?

    Definitely agree with everyone that it seems spammy. I did it for a while and did feel like i gained a bit of extra followers doing but being reported as spam is always in the back of my mind so i stopped. You're better off doing it manually.

    If you manage to spin your comments really well and manage to find hashtags where you can write appropriate comments which apply to the pictures you'll surely gain :)

    I think it is REALLY worth it if you are using the hashtags and scraping right followers. It is a big waste of time if you have too broad hashtags.. What I think is spammy is likes really because your followers will see it easily that you like random pictures and possibly unfollow. that's what I would do. And yeah it depends on the niche as well

    Manual commenting can help tremendously, while spamming with random unrelated comments may most likely have a negative effect.

    that being said there are enough hours in the day to do all your liking and following plus commenting that there is no reason you shouldn't I mean if your bot is going to be idle anyways myswell do something that could bring in a few more followers
